Homeschool Highlights - week of November 7, 2010

We have a week of field trips!  So, since not much book work is getting done, we are working on wrapping up some projects, reading aloud, enjoying each other, and working on character traits. 


Field Trip:  Attended Children's Theater Production of Huckleberry Finn.  This play was put on by the talented performers of ArtReach of Cincinnati, OH. 

Also, we observed a lady signing the whole show for a group of children.  It was fascinating watching her communicate with hand movements and body language.  It makes me want to further my ASL signing knowledge.

Here is the study guide for Huck Finn. 

Phys Ed:  Got outside for an extended recess on this beautiful, Indian summer, fall day.

Bible:  While outside, we worked on memorizing the books of the old testament in song.  (music, Bible)

Field trip.  Children's Theater Foundation's Junie B. Jones.  We both thoroughly enjoyed this show.  Our sides hurt from laughing the entire hour.  The play writers added highlights from each and every Junie B. book into this hour long show.  :)
